Neurological functions: Proactive control
Neojungian function name: Explicit Execution & Implicit Processing
As an executive person, you are driven by control and self-direction, at your best when you are decisive and on the way towards a goal. Thinking proactively, they measure their success by the ability to implement a goal as closely to the plan as possible. Judgers therefore avoid changes in their decisions, by filtering out information which they deem as irrelevant or distracting. This allows them to stay on target and to plan their way forward. Judgers respond to challenges and distractions by adding pressure, rather than adapting their path around the problem.
Neurological functions: Reactive control
Neojungian function name: Explicit Processing & Implicit Execution
As a processing person, you are driven by new information and flexibility. Thinking reactively, adaptable types are constantly brainstorming options and alternatives. Adaptable types are quick to make changes in the sight of obstacles, rather adapting to the flow than trying to fight it. Besides being good brainstorm troopers they make skilled testers, pushing buttons, and exploring consequences. Adaptable types stay open even after a decision is made, at the expense of being more easily distracted, and because they are so aware of when the flow changes, they can escape difficult situations and unforeseen consequences much faster than the judgers.
